Lena Dunham Responds to Backlash, Will Compensate Her Tour Performers After All

Lena Dunham gets chatty talking about her new book “Not That Kind of Girl” on Good Morning America on Tuesday (September 30) in New York City.

The 28-year-old actress has been in hot water since it was revealed she was not paying the opening acts for her book tour.

“As an artist raised by artists, no one believes more than I do that creators should be fairly compensated for their work.” Lena tweeted in her defense. “This feature of the tour was meant to be a way to showcase local talent and I could not be more excited about it.”

However, after receiving tons of backlash from fans, websites, and fellow artists, Lena changed her mind.
